Inchingerig Bridge: a view from on top, of the old trunk road below

A stone-arched bridge in the townland of Inchingerig, near to the Ilen river. The alignment of the road it bridged has been changed since 1961, meaning this bridge no longer serves any purpose, but unlike many other skew bridges which were demolished to make way for road improvements, this one escaped. The west approach embankment has been cleared away, but otherwise the structure is in good condition and visible from the main Bantry-Cork road nearby (the R586). Here is the Ordnance Survey map for the site.
